… not even your parents necessarily expected to give
To some, life is the imposition of the will of others, their parents, on someone who isn’t even existent yet to give, or withhold for that matter, consent… ‘an act of violence’ He says. SMH… TIFO (shake my head till it falls off) 🙂 I prefer to agree with those who see Life as a Wonderful Gift, an Amazing Opportunity.
Yes, maybe how you were conceived could have been accidental or even violent in the case of rape or incest, but the Life that resulted is not bound to the way it was conceived or begun. As some say, it is “new every morning” and every new day is an opportunity to shape your own identity, destiny and purpose for yourself, sans blame to anyone else. Every new day we wake up is a Wonderful Unasked for Gift, and an Amazing Renewed Opportuniy. In short, We Own our Own.
You have life today. You draw breath today.
For whatever reason, purpose or by whatever circumstance you came into this world, you have the daily choice and responsibility to create anew your own reason, purpose, identity and destiny for the life you have. I encourage you today to stop Blaming others and start Creating for yourself the Life you want to live.
“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” -Tony Robbins
